Full description:

COPD is a lung condition that causes breathlessness. Pulmonary rehab (rehab for short) is an exercise programme that helps breathlessness, but few people are referred to it. We are inviting people with COPD to an online/telephone interview to discuss what doctors should say to their patients about rehab. We are interested in hearing from people who have never been to or dropped out of rehab, and people from ethnic minority backgrounds. Email chat_study@brunel.ac.uk or phone 01895265949 for info.
